The Infinite Sea is the hugely anticipated follow-up to the phenomenal - and bestselling - The 5th Wave by Carnegie-shortlisted Rick Yancey. "Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances...Just read it". (Entertainment Weekly). The 1st wave: Took out half a million people. The 2nd wave: Put that number to shame. The 3rd wave: Lasted a little longer. Twelve weeks...Four billion dead. In the 4th wave: You can't trust that people are still people. And the 5th wave? Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others' ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race. Cassie and her friends haven't seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate. "This gut-wrenching sequel to The 5th Wave careens on a violent course of non-stop action". (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
